Kidney Disease Management

Our nutritionists will customise a plan based on your medical history and include foods high in anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, Vitamin C, A, B6, fibre and folic acid to help repair your kidneys. The goal is to increase your muscle mass, and reduce visceral fat (fat around organs) for overall better health.

Kidneys are responsible for several functions:

  • Filtering waste products, excess water, and impurities out of blood
  • Regulate pH, salt and potassium levels
  • Produce hormones that regulate blood pressure
  • Control the production of red blood cells
  • Electrolyte balance

Kidney diseases should not be ignored, and can be extremely fatal if unmonitored:

The build-up of waste products and excess fluid may cause:

  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of appetite
  • Confusion

The inability to remove potassium from the bloodstream may cause:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Sudden death

Rising urea levels in the blood may lead to:

  • Brain damage (Encephalopathy)
  • Inflammation of the heart lining (pericarditis)
  • Low calcium blood level (Hypocalcaemia)

Change your eating habits now, so your Diabetes and Hypertension do not progress into kidney failure.
